AAS-C will be partnering again this year with fellow advocacy organizations Crape Myrtle Festival, the LGBT Center of Raleigh and the North Carolina AIDS Action Network (NCAAN), with all parties benefiting from donations. These groups collectively provide invaluable community awareness and support efforts in HIV/AIDS education, treatment, prevention and counsel.
Two Registration options and pricing!
You are invited to join friends, family, co-workers and community residents for Raleigh's Dining Out For Life® event on Thursday, June 16, 2016 to support the mission of the Alliance of AIDS Services-Carolina of compassionate and non judgmental care, prevention, education and advocacy for people living with HIV/AIDS, their loved ones, caregivers and communities at large.
How does it work? Participating restaurants donate a percentage of their proceeds that night to the fight against HIV/AIDS. You can make a difference by simply ordering a meal.
Your generosity helps keep the beds warm at Orange House where individuals with HIV/AIDS can find a place to call home. It helps us run education and outreach programs aimed at reducing the number of lives devastated by HIV/AIDS. It also helps alleviate some of the burden many of our clients face of having to choose between paying for daily medications or an electric bill or food for their family.
Check back soon for more information, participating restaurants, and ways to volunteer for this fun community event.
